Single, professional academic
What I’m doing with my life
I'm chronicling my experience at:
Working as an adjunct English professor
Writing a book of short stories about Cleveland
Learning how to manage my time
I’m really good at
I'm really good at making people laugh
I'm really good at making conversation
I'm really good at using semicolons
I'm really good at listening
I'm really good at going on adventures
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a really nice collection of ties. Those I meet seem to enjoy them.
Also, I smell nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Mexican, Indian and Chinese food.
I enjoy watching cheap horror movies at home, but also love going
out to the theater.
I don't have any favorite books, but I've read a TON. I like to
read anything so long as I find it interesting.
I'm the same way with music. I have a very eclectic listening
style, but were a gun to my head: I'm a rock and roll fan.
The six things I could never do without
1. I could never do without my family and friends, because they are
the ones I rely on the most when I've fallen off the path.
2. I can't do without coffee, either. It keeps my engine
3. I couldn't last very long without all these modern conveniences
(iPhone, WiFi, etc.) because they've just become so integrated into
how I live my life.
4. I couldn't do without my Cleveland sports teams, as I am an avid
fan of all things Browns, Indians and Cavaliers.
5. I also need my collection of books/music if I'm going to go on.
Reading and listening to music are my favorite of all
6. I couldn't do without a nice, worn pair of jeans.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think every day of how I can help the next person. I've witnessed
and experienced a lot of struggle in my life. Today I try to lend a
helping hand to those in need. Sometimes, that's through helping my
students understand literature. Sometimes, that's through buying a
guy a pack of cigarettes and a cup of coffee. Sometimes, it's just
trying not to be a jerk to the people I meet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out in a local coffee house, playing on my phone and maybe doing a little reading or writing. Then, I usually meet up with friends for some round-table discussion on what's going on in our lives. Maybe catch a movie. Maybe go to a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty open book. I have a few secrets, however I think
private matters are best revealed through one-on-one style
You should message me if
You're interested in hanging out and enjoy good company.
